Quantitative research to inform the Financial Advice Market Review (FAMR) baseline
The Financial Advice Market Review (FAMR) was launched in August 2015. It explored how government, industry and regulators could take steps to develop the financial advice and guidance market. The Financial Lives 2017 survey helped inform a baseline to monitor the development of the financial advice market.
We provide the multi-volume data tables from our 2017 survey.
These provide access to the results of almost all the survey questions and to different ways the data can be looked at. Given the breadth of the survey, we have not included all the results in our published reports.
To guide you through the various volumes of data tables we have published a data tables user guide.
